Bus users in Aylesford are facing disruption for the next six weeks as a result of a road closure.
The 155 service will not be able to serve the section between the Village Hotel and Aylesford village from today until Friday, May 17, due to Forstal Road being shut.
Passengers are also warned that from Monday to Saturday, buses to and from Chatham will run direct via Royal Engineers Road and will be diverted via Blue Bell Hill, the Lower Bell and Rochester Road to Aylesford village.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, buses towards Maidstone will serve the estate as normal while those towards Chatham will run through Ringlestone direct along Old Chatham Road and will stop at the petrol station before taking the diversion route to Aylesford.
A shuttle bus will also be available to run at the normal times between Maidstone bus station and the Running Horse and will serve Old Chatham Road and Ringlestone estate.
Arriva marketing manager Lauren Edmonds said: “Arriva would like to apologise to passengers for any inconvenience caused by these road works."
